Not much more I can really say about it, so instead I’ll use the opportunity to bash contemptible, oily rumpswab Mittens Romeney. Rather, I’ll let Ace do it:
Mitt Romney is a not a conservative, “severe” or otherwise. He’s a Business Class Liberal. Always has been. Yes, he’s very “conservative” on issues like “should the working class always have their wages reduced by constant remorseless labor arbitrage and relocating factories to China,” and “conservative’ on the question “should companies be allowed to take a business expense deduction on their taxes for the costs of moving factories to China,” but on everything else — including, especially, Obamacare, which he fathered — he’s a liberal.
Always has been.
And he’s coward who can’t even stand up to Candy Crowley. Just blinked at her stupidly.
Would not take the fight to Barack Obama.
Oh, but now this soy-based bitch has some fight in him, huh?
Ace then excerpts another takedown of the oxygen thief:
Romney’s Entire Career Has Been About Punishing Republicans For Voting For Him
Yes, he’s different from many others within the GOP in the sense that he has no firm principles upon which to base his political decisions besides self-interest and self-importance. He is vaguely in favor of free markets insofar as he appreciates a pro-business environment, having been a businessman once. But that seems to be the extent of his political personality.
Romney’s efforts to appear above the “lesser” GOP fray in many cases has translated into a repudiation of conservatism. To be clear, Romney may vote however he pleases, but he, along with our media betters, will likely portray his alleged defection as a more principled approach to conservatism. That takeaway is incorrect. Romney has been voting against his own party’s voters for his entire political career, and on core moral issues, not just pragmatic choices such as the level of tax rates or regulation.
…None of these examples are to suggest that Romney must hold the same positions forever and be lambasted if his positions ever change. But as my friend Josh Hammer, Daily Wire Editor-at-Large, suggested to me, Romney is an “inveterate chameleon” whose political opinions are not founded upon any transcendent principles but based solely upon what he perceives as capable of granting him the most approval from DC sycophants.
He attempts to portray himself as a moral bulwark, but as the above shifts in opinion indicate, many of his political leanings seem to be more a product of self-interest than of genuine moral clarity. In the coming days, he will be paraded around by the media as the model Republican for all the reasons GOP voters increasingly dislike him. Contrary to the media’s deification of Romney as the only principled figure within the GOP, it’s ironically all politics to him. No principles.
If there is any single embodiment of why the Founders feared and loathed the very idea of a “professional politician” class, Romeney might just be it. Should the smarmy bastard now endeavor to disgrace himself yet further by begging the Democrat-Socialists on hands and knees for permission to run on the ticket as their Veep nominee, it wouldn’t come as any surprise.
Update! Trump punches back, as always.
President Donald Trump released a devastating video criticizing Mitt Romney after the Utah senator voted to impeach him as president.
“Slick, slippery, stealthy Mitt Romney had us fooled,” the narrator of the anti-Romney video says over images of Mitt Romney in sunglasses.
The video reminded Trump supporters that Romney initially visited the president after he was elected, trying to win Trump’s favor so he could be nominated Secretary of State.
“Posing as a Republican, he tried to infiltrate Trump’s administration as Secretary of State,” the narrator continues. “Now his cover is blown.”
The video calls Romney a “Democrat secret asset” and reminds viewers he failed to beat President Obama in 2012.
Citing his faith, Romney said Wednesday on the Senate floor that he felt that Trump was guilty and deserved to be impeached.
“I swore an oath before God to exercise impartial justice. I am profoundly religious,” he said. “My faith is at the heart of who I am. I take an oath before God as enormously consequential.”
Don’t look now, but I think God Himself may have just thrown up at that shameless self-justification.
